    Reports suggested that a group of seers had opposed the programme saying that the pious Saryu water would become impure due to this programme. There were even threats that there would self-immolation if this programme went through.

    Heavy security had been deployed at the venue fearing protests. Over 1,000 Muslims had gathered at the venue. The namaz was later performed at the Nau Ghazi shrine, 3 kilometres away from the original venue. UP minister Laxmi Narayan and BJP MLA, Ved Prakash Gupta took part in the namaz.

    The Rashtriya Muslim Manch was disappointed over the event being cancelled. They said that they could not host the namaz despite getting a nod from the administration.
